3e étage – Soloists and Dancers of the Paris Opera Ballet

“3e étage is a group that highlights the singularity of some of the most exceptional dancers from the Paris Opera Ballet in ingeniously structured shows, which allow them to unleash the full range of their prodigious capabilities.

Under the direction of choreographer Samuel Murez, these exciting artists bring a playful sensibility and irreverent touch to performances that take the spectator from classical masterpieces such as “Swan Lake” to acclaimed original works like the whimsical “Epiphénomènes”, as well as pieces by master choreographers such as William Forsythe and Roland Petit.”

3e étage, Dance & New Media

How can “dance” use the New Media, to make Dance vibrant, compelling, and have you wishing for more? The 3 videos below show 3e étage’s brilliant and creative use of the New Media. Creative use of the New Media does not mean “bells and whistles.”  Instead,  means first, a clean UI, second. a combination of movement and music, and third, intimate portrayals which brings the Dance to the person, and the person to the Dance.

3e étage has achieved all three of these objectives. See for yourself.
